Ponsse's efficient solutions for profitable logging
Ponsse’s products and services that improve productivity and profitability in logging have a strong presence at the The Great Lakes Logging & Heavy Equipment Logging Congress September 5-7 Escanaba, MI. The new PONSSE Cobra harvester was introduced at the fair as well as new PONSSE Active Crane system for loader controlling.
PONSSE COBRA – an efficient harvester for varying conditions
The PONSSE Cobra is an adaptable eight-wheel all-round machine with an extensive range of equipment making possible a variety of cutting and work methods. The Cobra’s strengths include a powerful six-cylinder engine, a high-performance hydraulics system powered by a sizeable 210 cm3 working pump, and a robust and thoroughly tested structure. Thanks to the high quality of its basic solutions, the Cobra is a reliable and fuel-economic package whose accurate and easy-to-use crane, great balance and powerful six-cylinder engine make it an excellent solution for varying conditions.
Seamless loader control with PONSSE Active Crane
The PONSSE Active Crane offers a new way of controlling the loader and boosting work. It is an innovation that the driver uses to control the grapple movement instead of individual functions, allowing the driver to concentrate efficiently on loader work. The Active Crane is easy to control using two control levers, one of which controls the grapple height from the ground and the other the direction of movement. What is essential is that the driver does not need to control all the functions simultaneously. When the desired grapple location is specified for the machine, the system performs the lifting, folding and extending operations automatically.
The new products are part of the Boost/Save approach aimed at enabling customers to improve the productivity and cost efficiency of harvesting through the right products, information systems, training and service. Apart from forest machines, Ponsse will be presenting at the FinnMETKO fair new features, products and solutions for environmentally friendly and responsible harvesting.
